The artistic progression from the band's self-titled debut to the following year's RIO was the greatest aesthetic leap of Duran Duran's career. The group moved from catchy but somewhat rudimentary New Romantic synth-funk to elegantly arranged, sophisticated pop-rock, concentrating more on song structure than dance beats. For their efforts, they were rewarded with superstar status, due chiefly to "Hungry Like the Wolf", a lascivious tune that injects a welcome dose of rock & roll guitar. The most impressive tracks on RIO, though, are the more contemplative, balladic offerings, like "Lonely in Your Nightmare", "Save a Prayer", and especially "The Chauffer", with its stream-of-consciousness lyrics and unconventional structure, arty without seeming pretentious. If you only have one Duran Duran album, it should be RIO.

Classic!

Been playing this yesterday. They did a nice job on the remastering and it sounds very fresh.
I'd forgotten how good this album is too. Not one duff track on it, and can you believe The Chauffeur was written in 1978 !
#4
Does it have the extra verses in "Hold Back The Rain?"

The Chauffeur is a fantastic track, though I didn't realise it was written back in 1978. Hardly filler material though.
